Twentieth Century Apartment with a Modern Interior

By • Feb 26, 2018

This fabulous apartment of worn brick walls, which dates back to the Twentieth Century, and located in the heart of the beautiful Spanish city of Valencia tells a very unique story.

It has been designed by the architectural firm Roberto Di Donato Architecture, a London-based architectural and design practice, established in 2014 operating across UK and Europe. After many years of neglect, the apartment was an empty shell when it was bought by the client, creating numerous opportunities, but also challenges for the design team.

The focus of the project was guided by the ambition to create modern, distinct, but fluid living spaces that almost left the existing structure intact.

Space flows constantly from one area to another, with the separation between night and day areas provided by two tall wooden elements. These custom-designed items also contain the bedroom cabinets and three sets of doors that allow varying degrees of privacy.

The height of the roof was also considered a particularly valuable element in the renovation. The structure of the roof was restored and maintained completely exposed. No element of the new design comes into contact with it, which underlines the respect for the past and also allows to perceive the full feeling of space and volume of the apartment.
